Sandvik Coromant and Precorp Inc. have reached a cooperation agreement with the aim of being a joint solution provider for composite machining, particularly in the aerospace industry.
Difficult materials, complex shapes, precise specifications, higher production rates and tighter timelines are some of the many unique factors that make manufacturing aerospace components so challenging.
Sandvik Coromant has the expertise and resources to deliver comprehensive solutions including the tools and the critical process knowledge necessary for reducing non-cutting time and optimizing cutting performance.
An extension to the Sandvik Coromant Sialon grade CC6060 range support the turning and milling of heat resistant super alloys. These latest introductions include inserts for semi-finish to finish machining.
Sandvik Coromant identifies seven links in the modern tool technology chain that have elevated HRSA and titanium turning to new performance levels.
International Titanium Association Annual Conference Oct 3-6. Attend the presentation Best Practice Methods for Enhancing Productivity in Titanium Machining on October 4 to learn productivity enhancing tips for aerospace frame manufacturing.
Combustion cases for aircraft turbofan engines are extremely complex to manufacture. But Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has managed to improve the manufacturing process repeatedly. Its way to success: fruitful partnerships.
Titanium alloys are considered difficult-to-machine metals, especially when facemilling. To manage this problem, consider several factors: alloy properties, principal geometry of facemills, suitable cutting too materials, machining parameters, and coolant application.
When roughing, there are 3 options for hogging material out of a titanium pocket: (1) drilling and profile milling, (2) ramping to incremental depths, and (3) drilling and plunge milling.
Finishing is a key operation and making the process more reliable has a major impact on machine efficiency and part quality. Remember the machine only makes you money when the green light is on and the part is right the first time. Learn the secret to taking the stress out of surface integrity and spring passes will be a thing of the past.
Sleek wings and powerful engines are familiar images of flight. An aircraft’s landing gear, however, is just as essential for successful air travel. A fully loaded, double-deck, 800-passenger Airbus A380 jetliner weighs about 1.3 million lbs. Aloft, those 650 tons are supported by the magic of aerodynamic lift. But movement on the ground, including takeoff [...]
Achieving a good productivity rate is the fundamental goal in titanium milling; it can be achieved through good process security and reliability by means of advanced CNC programming and optimized tools.
